Brussels, 27 May 2013
The High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice President of the Commission issued the following statement today:
"I welcome the decision of both sides to adopt the implementation plan which translates into practice the provisions of the April Agreement.
I would like once again to commend Prime Minister Dačić and Prime Minister Thaçi for their leadership and determination. Their personal engagement will continue to be essential in view of a swift implementation of the plan.
The implementation plan is designed to solve problems on the ground and to ensure rapid progress of both Serbia and Kosovo towards the European Union. It represents a further step forward in the EU-facilitated dialogue and it is without prejudice to the positions of the two sides on the Kosovo status."
